Weekly Wish Wednesday: PowerPack Supplies


Our youth in Kansas City are in need of PowerPack supplies. Our PowerPacks are something we give every new youth that comes to a workshop. These are backpacks filled with everyday items such as snacks, hygiene products, socks etc that they may not get otherwise. PowerPacks allow our kids to have necessary items of their own no matter where they go. Once a child has received a PowerPack they can bring them back in to us if they run out of any of these essentials.

Necessary goods like hygienic supplies, food, and clothes can make a real difference in our kids’ lives. It helps them feel good about themselves and better able to concentrate on school or job training. PowerPacks are a way to make sure they don’t have to worry about these things if they find themselves in a tough spot.
